Byline: Words by Hannah Nathanson

Home is...

I live just outside London in Hertfordshire with my family. I rarely stay in London because I live 40 minutes away, so I commute, but if I do stop over, it is in different hotels dotted around town.

What's your life philosophy?

Laugh at yourself.

What animal would you most like to be?

What was the last album you bought?
